Appalachian State already has one Power-Five win this season. Now it’s time to take a shot at a second.

App State (7-1, 4-1 Sun Belt) plays its final nonconference game of the season on Saturday, taking on South Carolina.

Now the Mountaineers look to get back on track this week before diving back into conference competition.
